Canadians abandon islands as fish stocks drop

Many in Newfoundland communities accept government incentive to relocate after dwindling fish stocks hit livelihoods.

    However, declining fish stocks have sent these outposts into slow decline, prompting the government to offer residents money to settle elsewhere.
